Christina Jarmolinski is showing more religious and spiritual artwork at Syzygy Gallery in September. A new selection of these works goes on exhibition Friday night during Art Walk, from 6-10 p.m.
The exhibition is an exciting presentation featuring many smaller, modestly-priced drawings. However, Syzygy will also have a number of Jarmolinski’s large scale religious paintings, including Maria Magdalena, The Shroud and Moses and the Burning Bush. Buddhist Monks of Burma and some metaphysical interpretations will also be included.
Jarmolinski created many of these paintings, drawings and collages during a period of deep spiritual growth that she experienced during extensive stays in Europe, where she was greatly influenced by European masters such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Tintoretto, El Greco, Rubens, Rembrandt and Chagall.
In the mid-80s, Jarmolinski was invited to design an altar, stained glass windows, murals and posters for churches in Germany. Much of that work has been exhibited in many churches in Bavaria but never before in the United States until this summer.
The internationally-acclaimed artist attributes her Buddha paintings to the time she spent in India, which also influenced her “Designs by Jarmolinski,” semi-precious stone and antique beads she has collected on her trips throughout Europe and India.
Syzygy Gallery will showcase these works from September 2 to October 5,2011. Meet the artist at the reception during Art walk. Syzygy Gallery is located at 2224 First Street, Ft Myers, FL 33901.
